A Bit More Manly.......

Hi all.

As i've said before I tend to struggle a bit with cards for Men, but I think this one has turned out quite well. The main panel of glittery card is from my much loved DCWV Glitter Mat Stack, I punched a 1 3/4" hole towards one end ready for the embellishment. I then cut a strip of grey paper and glued directly to the card I then stamped the sentiment using Brilliance Starlight Black ink so that the "happy" went on the card and "birthday" went on the grey paper. I then cut a strip of black paper which I punched one edge using an X-Cut border punch, I then attached that to the back of the main card panel. Using double sided foam I attached the glittery panel with the black trim to the card. For the embellishment I used a silver peeloff stuck onto some white card, I cut around that and coloured it in with a poppy Promarker and coloured over that using a Clear Sakura Stardust pen. I then attached that directly to the card using double sided foam.

I have entered this into One Stop Craft Challenge this week for their "Monochrome" theme

I think this is an excellent card and I am sure it would be well received by any man. Thanks so much for joining OSCC this week.
